Rental Space for Creatives and
Small Events in LeMars, Iowa

This Must Be THe Place


Blank slate is a rentable studio with over 700 open square feet of bright light, minimal decor, and white space. It's the perfect place for your vision, whether you're working on a project for your business or hosting a small event.  This place is my happy space and I want to make sure that it is yours, too.  

The Space 


I love event rentals at Blank Slate. From Baby Showers, Bridal Showers and Birthday Parties to getting ready on the day of your wedding!  I have everything you need.  This space holds 40 seated perfectly but can accommodate more with non-seated options.

Thanks to my love of fun props I have collected a nice amount for the studio so that photographers do not have to drag their own stuff around. This includes real plants, vases, books and more.  If you would like to bring your own props they are certainly welcomed. 

Can I bring in my own props

Blank Slate hosts small events and  typically those types of events like Baby Showers, Bridal Showers (mini sessions too) and Getting Ready Parties fall on weekends. I have the minimum rental set at 5 hours to accommodate for those rentals. If there are no weekend rentals I can make an exception. Just send me an email and I can put it on the calendar. 

Why Can't I book 2 Hour on a Weekend

Due to the terms of my rental agreement, pets are not allowed in the studio. Thank you for understanding.

Can I have pets at the Shoot
